Meet the Team

Phoenix School of Languages was founded by Katie Cox.

“My mission is to create an outstanding language school in order to promote education and training in the local community by helping our clients communicate, whatever the language, whatever their needs.

I have 15 years experience in teaching ESOL (English for Speakers of Other Languages) and 3 years of course management.

I have a degree in Linguistics, Edexcel Level 5 BTEC Certificate in FE Teaching, Cambridge L4 CELTA (Certificate in Teaching English to Speakers of Other Languages) and am a registered teacher with the Institute for Learning. I have undertaken continuous professional and personal development, including a Diploma in Computer Applications, ECDL, Key Skills Level 3, Microsoft Office Specialist and Level 5 Award in Developing Embedded Approaches in Literacy, Language and Numeracy for teachers in the Lifelong Learning sector.”


Annabel Farquharson

I am a qualified EFL teacher with over 25 years of experience. I work as a free-lance trainer and currently specialise in exam preparation and video lessons.

I believe in creating dynamic and interesting lessons so the students can benefit from a native speaker and learn in a creative way. I have a fundamental belief that if the student enjoys the learning experience they will learn effectively.


Beatrice Cox - Executive Director and assistant teacher

By being your best self and living your best life, you create a path for others to do the same. I believe that we all have something valuable to learn from others, and something valuable to teach others.

I have a Cambridge L4 CELTA (Certificate in Teaching English to Speakers of Other Languages) qualification and a degree in Business Management. I have three years of diverse teaching and managerial experience!

At Phoenix school of languages, we nurture a supportive and caring learning environment. We help students to fulfil their potential, and we strive to contribute to a better society by encouraging our students to pursue their intellectual, spiritual, and physical development. Inspiration, nourishment, and the exchange of experiences and knowledge is what keeps us learning and doing the absolute best for our students!
